The French Bulldog (French: bouledogue or bouledogue français) is a type of residential dog, bred to be companion pets. The breed is the outcome of a cross between Toy Bulldogs imported from England and local ratters in Paris, France, in the 1800s. They are stocky, compact dogs with a friendly, mild-mannered character.

The type is popular as an animal: in 2019, they were the second-most prominent registered pet dog in the UK and the fourth-most popular AKC-registered dog type in the United States. They were ranked the third-most-popular dog in Australia in 2017. In 2019 in the United Kingdom, the French Bulldog had 375 export pedigrees and a total amount of 33,661 registered dogs.
